the treasury bureau of statistics. While

i In conjunction with the tables show

v 1800. exports of manufactures averaged
about $2,000,000 per annum; in tho de
cades ending with 1810 and 1820, re

and never reached as much as $10,000,
000 prior to IS 10. Ry 1850 the exports

William Corless, president of the
Scranton Typographical union, and
delegate from that body to the Cen
tral Labor union, one of the men
named by the street car men to arbit
rate their present trouble with the
Scranton Railway company, Is probably
the best known local labor leader In
He has been actively Identified with
trades-unionism In this city for a quar
ter of a century or more, and Is an in
telligent, conservative man in every
sense of the word. For the past eigh
teen years Mr. Corless has been fore
man of Tho Scranton Truth's compos
ing room, and during 'all these years
his relations with the craft have been
One thing which brought him into
prominence lately, was his able and ex
haustive composition on "Compulsory
Arbitration," which was awarded the
chief prize at tho national eisteddfod
held at the Scranton Armory, on Me
morial Day. His letters on the labor
question In answer to Rev. I. J. Lan
sing also attracted widespread atten
tion. Mr. Corless Is also editor of the Labor
Herald, which has gained much prom
inence under his direction. At the re
cent election he was chosen to repre
sent the Scranton Typographical union
at the International convention to be
held In Cincinnati next month.
There is a quiet, unassuming young
man, whose home is on Phelps street,
who is probably doing more this year
to uphold Scranton's reputation as a
producer of great base ball players,
than any one of the numerous skilled
young athletes hailing from this vic
inity. His name is William Coughlln,
and the base ball fanatics of Washing
ton, D. C, consider him one of the most
valuable men on their American league
And that isn't saying a little, when
one considers that the Senators' nine
has on Its payroll such grizzled, time
proven veterans as "Home Run Ed"
Delahanty, "Scrappy Jack" Doyle, and
"Scoop-'em-up George" Carey. Cough
lln has played third and second bases
and shortstop, this season, and his
work has been brilliant In each posi
tion. His batting has been the strong
est of his diamond career, and his gen
tlemanly conduct on and off the field
has made him deservedly popular, with
the capital's base ball enthusiasts.
Coughlln formerly played with the
James Boys' team of this city, and was
later a member of the strong Young
Men's Christian association, on which
GUleran, "Jimmy" Dean and Hoffnor
were other crack members. His first
professional work of any consequence
was with the Pawtucket, R, I team.
He later joined Wllkes-B.irre in the
Eastern league, and also played with
the Luzerne team In the Atlantic
He later was signed by Washington,
but was not playing up to his proper
form at the time and was allowed to
join Jimmy Mannings' Kansas City
nine. He made a splendid record In
the West, and then joined the Senators
again. The fact that he Is making
good, with a vengeance, can be seen
by il perusal of the Washington team's

Stella Refused to Marry Suitor
Favored by Parents.
Because she would not marrv Felix
Domldrs, the choice of her parents for
n. husband, Stella Lusczynczka claimed
before Magistrate Millar, Saturday,
that she was brutally beaten by her

tho girl's father, was urrested Satur
day night, on a warrant sworn out by

Domldrs Is a boarder at the home of

than twice the girl's age, Is the suitor
favored by both father and mother.
Last May the girl attended Wallace's
circus, and claims thut on returning
home about 11 o'clock, she mot her
mother. The latter first rebuked and
then chastised hpr with nn Iron Btovo
poker, until she ran from the house,
She spent the night In a shed, and tho
following morning was again beutcn
by her mother,
Since then, Stella has lived with
friends nt 613 Locust street. Friday
night she met her father In tho central
city, and says that ho beat her both
with his fists and a stick, and followed
this up by kicking her, Magistrate
Millar, In disposing of the case, re
marked that he would remove the girl
from her parents' keeping and see to it
that tho law took proper care of her.
BAUER'S BAND EXCURSION,
